Is the link. It's not an extensive list I just didn't know where to start and loved having a list to check out first!
You can also read some photographer reviews posted on the forum which I found really helpful as well.

When I picked my photographer I thought I was going to the Dominican Republic, and to be honest there just are not a lot of great local photographers in the DR! So I started looking into bringing a photographer... looked at some of the vendors on here, and photgraphers who had shot other brides wedding pics on here that I liked. To be honest, I started getting a little overwhelmed with my options - I mean do you know how many great photographers there are in North America!?!
So I narrowed down my search to my local area because I figured if I was going to bring someone with me to stay with my wedding group at our resort and be such a huge part of my wedding, I want to meet this person and make sure I like them! Also, a bonus would be that someone local to me could also do our engagement shoot. I just started searching online (google, etc.) for Vancouver photographers and absolutely fell in love with Michael Wachniak's work. AND he fits my budget (well, close enough, lol). Plus he's a really nice guy, super enthusiastic, and very reasonable and flexible.
I would say that you should investigate local photographer options once you pick your location. But if that doesn't pan out, see if you can find a good photographer in your hometown that you can bring with you, or search the forum for photographer vendors (we have some very talented ones!) or who other brides have used and recommend. Keep an eye out too to see if any other brides are bringing a photographer to your resort or area around the same time you will be there as you might be able to split travel costs and save you both $$ on a great photographer!
Good luck with your search
